BACKGROUND The treatment and management of hip fracture poses a great challenge for clinicians in osteology and surgery. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical effectiveness of the percutaneous compression plate (PCCP) versus proximal femoral nail anti-rotation (PFNA) in the treatment of intertrochanteric fractures in elderly patients. METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway is essential for controlling bone mass; however, little is known about the variable effects of the constitutive activation of β-catenin (CA-β-catenin) on bone growth and remodeling at different postnatal stages. The goal of the present study was to observe the effects of CA-β-catenin on vertebral(More)
PURPOSE To enhance the awareness of rare complications of pelvic fracture and describe the correct diagnosis and effective treatment. METHODS A total of 188 cases of pelvic fractures were retrospectively reviewed, and four patients who suffered from four types of rare pelvic fracture complications were described, namely ureteral obstruction caused by(More)
Bone morphogenic proteins (BMPs) are critical for both chondrogenesis and osteogenesis. Previous studies reported that embryos deficient in Bmp receptor (Bmpr)1a or Bmpr1b in cartilage display subtle skeletal defects; however, double mutant embryos develop severe skeletal defects, suggesting a functional redundancy that is essential for early(More)
BACKGROUNDS AND OBJECTIVE Spinal cord injury remains to be a challenge to clinicians and it is attractive to employ autologous adult stem cell transplantation in its treatment, however, how to harvest cells with therapeutic potential easily and how to get enough number of cells for transplantation are challenging issues. In the present study, we aimed to(More)
